Type 2 fun is miserable while it’s happening, but fun in retrospect. It usually begins with the best intentions, and then things get carried away. ~REI
The reopening of Road 63 to the Blanca Lake Trailhead gave us the chance to explore Goblin mountain.
This time we came back with a raft twice the capacity to put the pursuit to rest once and for all.
It was only a matter of time before we came back to finish singing song of the Three Witches.
Last year our unsuccessful attempt to this mountain had us resort to Bing Peak during the same trip.
Last September we had a good run up to the very last weekend before weather conditions worsened.
Getting to base camp with good route finding skills, one can certainly enjoy the views abound without ever leaving camp.
I first saw the glaciated Entiat River Valley from Seven Fingered Jack, my first Bulger peak.
Holliway Mountain involved getting into the Methow River Valley through Methow Pass.
Judging from the route descriptions I read online, this looked to be another trip full of type 2 fun.
With the heightened avalanche danger in the Cascades this weekend, pup and I sought out places with minimal open terrain and settled on this woodsy mountain.
After three consecutive weekend visits to Eastern Washington due to incessant rainfall, we finally got our first sunny outing and a new high point.
Thanks to a recent report from NorthBen of this place I had wanted to visit but uncertain of the road conditions and accessibility this time of the year.
